I am a college professor. I teach painting, drawing and watercolor. Each lesson is tailored personally to each student. I have a lot of experience tutoring students of all ages. I currently teach at Drexel University and Fleisher Art Memorial.
I like engaging with my students and watching them develop new skills, our enthusiasm for the topic builds momemntum and provides a great learning atmosphere for the student. I love meeting new people who are interested in art since art is my lifelong passion.
Ekaterina was one of my favorite university professors! Firstly, she's hilarious! Ekaterina has an MFA so she's wealth of knowledge, and simply the best art/painting teacher in the world. She's also concerned about your progress as a student. I learned so much in one semester! Ekaterina has an amazing portfolio of work, and you'll be lucky to have her as an instructor. She's in high demand, so hopefully she can fit you into her busy schedule 🤓 Good luck!
I always ask about the student about their goals and needs and then outline my plan of action at the pace that is comfortable for the student. Everything is completely flexible and customizable to the student. I am interested in my student's learning goals.

Look for someone who is passionate and can provide legitimate exercises in learning how to paint and draw. Painting and Drawing is a language and it takes time to learn it, just like it takes time to learn a foreign language.
What are you interested in visually? What would you like to draw and/or paint? What are your goals?
